Test Driving 1970 Chevelle SS 396 Big-block V8 Four-speed

I thought you might like a look at this awesome 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, from Passing Lane Motors. This is a true L34 396 Big-block V8, four-speed car. As you can see, it has been beautifully restored in the correct factory color. It’s riding on SS wheels, with BF Goodrich white letter tires. The paint is extremely slick, the interior looks like new, and it runs out great. It really doesn’t get any better. I hope you find it interesting. We felt very fortunate to be able to take this baby for a little test drive. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

Car Cruise at Passing Lane Motors – Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, and Classics

Passing Lane Motors held their 2nd Annual Car Cruise In this Saturday, July 18th, and it really was a great time. Tons of awesome hot rods, street rods, muscle cars, classics, and even some modern muscle. They definitely had a little bit of everything. Poor Richards brought in some great food and there were ice cold drinks at the bar. Everyone was really having a blast. We tried to include as many cars in the video as possible. If we missed you, we’ll try to make it up to you next time. Also, we may have some more videos from this event in the days ahead. We just wanted to get this big mega video out as quickly as possible. Thanks for watching!

Wicked Sounding Cammed 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle from Passing Lane Motors

This thing is definitely plenty healthy. There is just nothing like the sound of a well-built, cammed small block Chevy. This 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle is powered by a 406 Stroker small block, backed by a 700r4 automatic. It’s a beautiful car inside and out. It’s decked out in the SS trim and strips and the interior has been fully restored as well. This one is ready to go. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

1957 Ford Thunderbird Restoration Nearing Completion

Another project is nearing completion at Manns Restoration in Festus, Missouri. The owner of this 1957 Ford Thunderbird has dreamed about restoring it for many decades and his dream is finally coming true.

Chevy Nova SS 327 V8 Open Headers Lopey Cam

While we were filming down at Manns Restoration the other day, Jordan heard this car fire up in the background. He thought you all might like to hear how it sounds. It’s powered by a 327 small block V8, with a pretty healthy cam in it. No fancy video stuff here, just one mean sounding American muscle car. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Vintage Indy Car Racing Action at Gateway Motorsports Park

I thought you might like a look at these awesome vintage Indy cars. They all get together and drive these cars, instead of letting them languish in museums. They had everything from flatheads, to normally aspirated V8’s, to Turbo Four Cam Fords. It’s just to get a glimpse at the past and hear these awesome machines roar around the track again. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
